If you mean around Page or Monument Valley/Canyon Circuit, I'm in.
Been there once, couldn't get enough.
I like taking photos.

Yes, to each his own. I have seen a few of these little wonders around Australia and know their owners love 'em.

We bought our 5er because we hated being cramped and crammed into a leaking tent, a cantankerous pop-up trailer, a floppy, wobbly caravan, plus I hated pulling that van. We wanted something to travel the country in and because I refuse to ever pull a caravan again, knew the only options were either a MH or a 5th wheel.

When we started looking we were constantly disappointed and sometimes horrified at the options we saw. Either the vehicle/combo was inappropriate or the asking price was too high. But when we eventually managed to pin down an importer and reseller of FR HG's in a nearby town (Warragul), after travelling through the eastern states for 2 weeks on the prowl, (we had been following his ads in a local caravan trader magazine but he never answered his phone or called back - a warning maybe), feelings started to change. The DW climbed into the Heritage Glen 28RLT, sat down in the recliner and said "this is it". So here we are.

I have to thank her because I now have plenty to occupy my time, both while out and about and at home, doing maintenance and modifying or adding stuff AND I now own a Silverado. What else are you gonna pull one of these beasts with? It was old with lots of K's (2004, 280,000kms), but looked in good condition (I think I had one eye closed at the time), and was a dream to sit in and drive. Plus of course it has more grunt than The Hulk.

This is the one furthest west, not on the water.

Thanks. Caught my eye a couple months ago.

Safe and happy travels.
